Do not question persons of high rank
First, good-breeding rarely permits us to question persons of high rank. When, then, the Bishop, or our venerated Superior, or any other ecclesiastic confers upon us the honor of a visit, we ought not to question him except through necessity, and always in the most respectful expressions.
We do not love people so much for the good they have done us, as for the good we do them.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
